Bi-Weekly Budget

Since I am now back to being paid on a bi-weekly schedule (I LOVED being paid weekly, this is the one of the downsides to this job, along with no benefits and no vacation) I have decided to bring back my bi-weekly budgets. I will still continue to report my weekly spending and monthly numbers but my bi-weekly numbers give a good indication of where ALL of my money goes, not just the variables. Plus if I'm tracking bi-weekly it will help me get my monthly numbers together quickly.

So here they are:

So, I'm going to work with these numbers and see how it goes.

TTFN,

  2. Sorry, wrong post. What a dumbass! What I wanted to say here was it was a big change for me to go from from weekly to fortnightly pays. But I still budget weekly, if that makes sense. Budgets are bigger in the second week, because that's when rent goes out, and smaller in the other weeks.

  3. @eemusings - yes! Conas ata tu? (How are you?) It actually was one of the courses I took in University and I've been trying to maintain it since.

    I'm still going to be tracking weekly (and posting the numbers on the blog) but I wanted to show everyone my fixed expenses and debt repayment/savings that I don't include in my weekly spending numbers as those are strictly variable spending.

    I've always had the issue that one pay period has more coming out than the other, that's why I had to split my Mastercard payment.

    @jpkittie - thanks! :)
